RV Stabilizers

I was wondering if there are some commerical stabilizers that would be better for my 23' Jayco TT?

Any thoughts?

I have the scissor jacks that came with the TT. I accidently bent one in the back.
So I was thinking of using ones you can slide under and jack up. Then remove after a camping trip.

I use these under the frame in front of the axles for extra stability. Cheap and effective.

What I also did was to take those selfdrillinng screws out and put bolts and nuts in. After I did that it seemed to me that the scissors jacks were more sturdy that way. Plus I don't put the scissors jack over half way down. Ernie

Hi Ernie. I must have bent one of the back scissor jacks in the small dip on our dirt road home. grrrrrr. So, I was thinking of getting the "Stack Jacks" like Crabman and some others have suggested. (Still under warranty, so I will get this fixed)

Thanks for all your help.
Cooling off in Tucson? It is getting very pleasant here in the Sierra Vista area.
Patagonia Lake this weekend. :hihi:

You may need some additional blocking at times under the jack for it to reach the frame securely. I bought a set of four on ebay auction for about $15.00. They are normally $30-35, still not bad. I only use two, one on each side in front of the axles in addition to the 4 standard scissor jacks. They really help especially when someone is climbing the steps into the trailer which creates a rocking effect due to the leverage of the steps. Theses help minimize this rocking.

Well lets say that the temp here is below 100 degrees. not much but below. We might be taking a trip to patagonia this weekend, what spot are you going to be in and when are you going to be there. May have to come down. Ernie
